The Winnebago Trend Drop Test

Ever Wondered What Would Happen If You Turned an RV Upside-Down and Dropped It?
For decades Winnebago has continued to test it's products in ways that exceed industry standards and practices. Perhaps nothing is more dramatic than the drop test, where a coach is hoisted three feet into the air and then dropped on it's roof. After the test, Winnebago engineers carefully examine structural integrity, appliance and cabinet attachment, and impact absorption.
In this video several high-speed cameras were used to record a Winnebago Trend hitting the pavement. After the test, notice how the door frame does not deform and can be opened. This is an indicator of how rigid the coach superstructure is.
This kind of destructive testing is very expensive, but over the years tests like these have helped us improve the durability of our products.
